Manchester City of Literature
Our young people will engage with and respond to the Working Class Movement Library’s unique archive, helping inspire them to create their own work on the themes of social change. The workshops ask young people to connect historical moments with what is happening in their local communities today. This will support them to develop their own voice within the current political landscape and explore how the power of language has developed working-class consciousness and has influenced political and social change.
The winning poets from these workshops will be selected for publication on the library website and their work will be performed by actors Maxine Peake and Carla Henry at the Library’s annual Radical Readers event. In addition, they will receive a WCML badge and poetry prize certificate and a £50 book voucher!
